PASSING THE INFORMATION
Passing the Information started as an exhibition of the same name in Xiamen, Chinain early spring 2001. Van Der Kaap lived there for three months as artist-in-residence on the campus of the University of Xiamen. Kaap also organized an outdoor party, the 1st Xiamen Video Dance Night where he performed as both VJ and DJ.
The leading roles in Passing the Information are played by three Chinese girls: Fang, Limei and Weiwei.
They play themselves and other people, and they act out their own dreams. The photographs of the girls show situations on and around the campus. They are situated in the grey zone between reality and fiction.
